First Trust Bank has ceased issuing banknotes
We have ceased issuing First Trust Bank banknotes and now dispense Bank of England banknotes through our ATM Network.
The decision to cease issuing our own banknotes was a commercial decision which took into account the increasing use of digital payment methods and mobile technology.
Our decision is solely in respect of our own banknote issuance, and we will continue to handle banknotes issued by the Bank of England and any of the other authorised note issuing banks in Northern Ireland and Scotland.
We remain fully committed to Northern Ireland and supporting our customers here and the wider Northern Irish economy. You can view our public announcement and frequently asked questions for further information.
We strongly encourage all First Trust Bank noteholders to lodge/exchange their notes as soon as possible.
